Dear Mr Nhleko

31 May 2015, 07:13

As I watched you deliver you Nkandla report, I felt a surge of mixed emotions; disbelief, anger, and a resolve to call for more ‘’pay back the money’’ campaign.  

During your delivery of this report you mentioned that South Africans are not stupid. I am however not sure if you really believed that. You strike me as a quit intelligent and eloquent man. As you do your well-practiced moves as you manipulated the truth, I watched and thought you underestimated the ability of a sizeable amount of South African who can see right through you.

To some of us a swimming pool is just that, a swimming pool and not a fire pool. Needless to say but apartheid government left us with first world infrastructure, fire equipment included. Our companies are making and exporting top class fire equipment. For the millions spent on the swimming pool and the so called expects, a proper fire equipment could have been purchased.  It takes a nine year old to see that that story is rubbish. Deep down, none of you   believed the fire pool c!@p. You claimed moral high ground; you are guided by principles, you would not discuss the report with the man under whose prerogative you work. My Foot! 

 It will be fault to assume that your well-rehearsed public choreography was genuinely based on the will to acknowledge the right of your constituency to know the truth. Why, because 62% of them are prepared to vote for you whether you rape the country or not.

Your manipulation of the truth is a cheap attempt to provide Zuma and the ANC with legitimacy and tool to silence your critics inside and outside the country. No amount of spin can decontaminate the compromised image of the president. You cannot fool all people all the time; Zuma’s day of reckoning will come.  When that day comes you will go down in history as one of those who covered his wrong doing.

  As I watched your speech though, I couldn't help but wonder how much does your soul cost. Whatever amount you make out of protecting one man and his unending scandals, is it enough to blind you from the plight of the poverty stricken man, woman and children? The precious time you spent massaging the report to protect could have been spent doing the job they pay you for; to protect them.

The politicians will never be accountable as long as government officials continue to engage in things which are generally wrong. Maybe we should ask officials this question: is the smile of politicians better than your service? Read more...

Some Brazil in South Africa

It would seem that there is only one party in South Africa capable of leading us out of the proverbial Amazon Rain Forest with its various indigenous tribes and natural pitfalls which in our context are self-interest, lack of inter-cultural respect, greed and then similarly to Brazil, crime and corruption. Read more...
